Degrees and Certifications:

Mr. Ward

Coach Ward

Welcome! I am looking forward to another great year at Forest.  This year my expectation is that we will all grow as readers and writers. 

I'm a Florida native born and raised in a what used to be a little town called Oviedo, FL. I attended South Carolina on a football scholarship and finished my degree at Benedict College where I continued to play football and majored in English. I am married with three wonderful kids. 

My teaching career started in Suwannee County where I taught sixth grade English for four years. Then left the school system for two years and went back to teaching sixth grade in the fall of 2018.  In the fall of 2019, my wife received a job here in Ocala and not to long after that, I began teaching here at Forest High School teaching English II & III.

I truly am looking forward to meeting you all!
